It's been a while since I did it...but if I remember correctly...it wasn't much different to do than any other OS version. Here's a link with the procedure:

IIRC that's basically what i did. Also tried cloning using the usual tools. Nothing produced a "bootable" clone. At the time I was trying to set this up because Tech Tool Pro was reporting bad blocks on my internal drive.

I will be trying this again when I have a bit more time.
